April Luxe Box 2012

Hey Friends!

Just got my April Luxe box in! It made it on the last day of April.... I was excited waiting for this box because I wrote to Luxe Box last month about a mistake I had in my March box. I signed up for the first in line program and when I had to choose a product.. I picked the Cargo Glitter Top Coat. I was really excited for the product and never got it.. so I just sent a little e-mail saying I was a little disappointed that I never got it in my box and so they sent me an e-mail back saying that they couldn't make up for the glitter top coat because they didn't have anymore but they would send me 2 bonus Cargo products! I was soo happy with that.... then my Luxe box came......

This is what was in my box:

So... I got

1) Pantene Shampoo and Conditioner- I've been hearing good things about how Pantene has come around and are now making pretty good products. I have never used Pantene in a very long time. Maybe when I was really little but I have not purchased any items from them in a long time.

2) Biosilk Leave-In Treatment- Anytime I hear of a really good leave-in conditioner I always have to try it out. This will be my first time trying this product and looking forward to it. I use leave-in conditioners every time I wash my hair! Got to keep my blonde hair looking and feeling healthy!

3) Mereadesso Beautiful Body Balm- Another product I have not tried... I really like the scent of this product. The full size product is a little pricey. I hope I don't fall in love with it.. or else its gonna break the bank.

4) Cargo Triple Action Mascara- Now I have tried the Lash Activator from Cargo from my Feb Luxe box and loved it... I am happy to try out another product from them. Seems like the formula will do wonders for my eye lashes yet again.

Now.. if you were me.. wouldn't you think I was going to receive 6 products total this month since I was supposed to get 2 bonus products? That's what I was thinking. Oh well.. there's always next month and I wrote another e-mail stating another mistake :(
I like how Loose Button also included a little daffodil pin for the Canadian Cancer Society... I like little touches like that!

What did you get in your box this month?

Good Morning!
I have my Doughnut Shop Keurig coffee brewing and a couple vanilla oreo cookies ready for me to start my day. In this outfit post we went into Playa Del Carmen to do a little shopping and find a authentic Mexican restaurant. We asked one of our Apple Vacations reps to guide us in the right direction and we found a cute one that had 2 floors over looking the streets of playa. Yes I know.. I kinda look like a hot mess but I did come from right off the beach.. grabbed my sea salt spray for my hair and off we went. For dinner I had shrimp enchiladas and my boyfriend had chicken and veggies wrapped in a banana leaf... kinda wished I got his.... why do I always wish I got what he's having? It always ends up that way...

Hello! I know 2 posts in 2 days... what's up with that? Just a little outfit post.. this is a pic of me getting ready to go out for dinner. The hotel we stayed at in the Riviera Maya was The Grand Palladium. It was huge.. there were 4 hotel sections in one big resort.. a little bit too big for me.. but whatev. I bought this dress last year at Target.. I love the sweetheart top and the pattern of the floral print on the dress. What can I say I'm a sucker for prints.. and esp floral. What kind of prints are you always lusting over? 
Oh.. and don't you just love the purple bracelet they make you wear? :P

Hey everyone!
I'm back from sunny Mexico and actually remembered to take a couple outfit posts while I was there.
I have been to Mexico 8 times and this was my 5th time going to the Riviera Maya. My friend Maggie was getting married and I was one of her bridesmaids. Before I went to Mexico I stopped by my nearest F21 (states side) and bought this little number for the trip. Sometimes I go into F21 and love everything I see and other times I don't.. this dress wasn't love at first sight but my friend Alana told me I had to get it! I'm glad I did because it was super cute! I'm already starting to peel a little bit but I'm slathering myself up with tons of lotion. I always peel after I tan even tho I put on SPF 30. After this trip I have decided I am officially over Mexico. It's time to see what the rest of the world has in store for us. We are already thinking Europe for next year. Thinking about one of those Contiki trips.. have you been on one?
